From routine checkup and cleanings to smile makeovers, Dental Health Partners of Ionia is equipped to handle all your dental needs. To help you understand your options, we've included descriptions of some of our most common services below.
Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a very thorough evaluation of your entire mouth. We check for tooth decay, gum disease, and bite problems. We are able to diagnose many dental concerns from x-rays and intra-oral pictures.
Air Abrasion Dentistry
This easy procedure is a way to treat cavities without using a dental drill. A strong stream of gritty air is used on the tooth and the cavity is "sandblasted" away. The best part is you don't have to get numb!
Diagnodent is a laser cavity detection system that works in an ingenious way. It shines a laser light onto the grooves and flat surfaces of the teeth. The light reflects back to indicate any changes in the tooth. Cavities can be detected much earlier and treated more conservatively saving more of your healthy tooth.
Dental Implants are a restorative option that allow you to replace missing teeth with ones that look, feel and perform like your own. Implants are used for single crowns, bridges or dentures. Read More...
Veneers are thin custom shaped porcelain shells that are bonded over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape.

Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns are used as a means to strengthen teeth which have broken, have large fillings, or have root canals. Crowns are made of tooth colored porcelain or gold. They cover the entire weakened tooth. Crowns add strength and beauty back to your smile. Bridges are like crowns in that they cover two or more teeth in order to replace a tooth that is missing.

Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smiles of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth. The effects of caffiene, tobacco, sodas, wine and aging causes noticeable darkening of the teeth. Whitening agents penetrate and remove that dark surface stain making teeth many shades brighter. Our office uses a whitening system of a gel and custom fitted trays that are worn nightly for 2 weeks to lighten the teeth.Read More...
A toothache is never fun for anybody. Here we keep patients on regular recall visits to find dental problems before they develop into toothaches. If a patient does have a toothache, there is treatment that will help alleviate the symptoms. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of food stuck between the teeth. Toothaches caused by decay are treated with fillings. If a toothache is larger and causing swelling or infection, antibiotics are indicated to treat the infection. As always, we want our patients to have preventative care to catch cavities or broken teeth before they form toothaches.
Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue. Read More..
